Doors at 7PM at Housing Works Bookstore Café (126 Crosby Street between Houston and Prince, New York). Get there early because the first fifty get a free drink; Sixpoint beer is only $3 a cup after that thanks to a generous donation from Sixpoint Craft Ales. All proceeds will benefit Housing Works in their continued efforts to fight AIDS and homelessness.
Then stick around for giveaways from Tumblr #Lit and a summer-themed reading from some of our favorite fellow Tumblrs: Emily Gould, author of And the Heart Says Whatever and Things I Ate That I Love, Maris Kreizman of Slaughterhouse 90210, and Dan Wilbur of Better Book Titles.
THEN head over to the after-party at Botanica Bar (around the corner on Houston between Mulberry and Mott), where you can buy a dark & stormy (soooo good and gingery at Botanica) for that Michael Chabon reader in the tortoiseshells. Drinks will be $1 off all night with a booktag from the event!
